Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

According to Fastcare,urgent care south Florida clinics, excessive sun exposure is perhaps the biggest and certainly most publicized risk factor of skin cancer, but that is just one of many potential factors that could lead to the development of skin cancer. Other risk factors include:

  •     Exposure to environmental hazards
  •     Radiation treatment
  •     Heredity may play a role
  •     Fair skin or light-colored eyes
  •     An abundance of large and irregularly-shaped moles
  •     Lived at high altitudes or with year-round sunshine
  •     And, of course, excessive sun exposure or blistering sunburns

The summer is officially here and Fastcare’s doctors in Aventura are advising their patients on 9 ways to stay protected and prevent skin cancer:

1. Reduce sun exposure - Especially between 11 am and 4 pm, when the sun’s UV rays are the strongest or when UV index is 3 or more.

2. Keep the skin in the shade - Seek shade under trees, or create a shade with a hat, shirt, or umbrella.

Wear clothing to cover arms and legs. Make sure the fabric has a tight weave. Fabric that is wet or has a loose weave will allow more light to penetrate through to the skin.
Wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection.

3. Beware of clouds - Up to 80% of the sun’s rays can penetrate light clouds, mist and fog. Sunburn may occur even on a cloudy day.

4. Remember about reflect
